Three Months Later, Demi Lovato Has Left Rehab
Lovato has been spotted in Los Angeles "happy, smiling, and laughing" three months after a drug overdose.
Following a nearly fatal overdose back in July, Demi Lovato has been in a steady upclimb on her road to recovery. 90 days after checking into rehab, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer has left the facility and has been spotted out and about in Los Angeles.
"She just got back to L.A. a couple days ago," a source close to the star told People. "She seems to be doing well so far."
Lovato was photographed having dinner at Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills with clothing designer Henri Alexander Levy. TMZ reports the pair appeared to be having a great time inside the establishment, and that they were "happy, smiling and laughing through dinner."
While it's unclear if Lovato's release is only a temporary excursion linked to her 90-day sobriety milestone, it's definitely comforting to see the 26-year-old singer doing well. The outlet also reported the singer was spotted at a spa in Los Angeles, so she looks to be enjoying herself.
Late last month, Lovato's mother, Dianna De La Garza, updated the public on her daughter's recovery. During a guest appearance on Maria Menounos' Sirius XM show, she proudly revealed Lovato was 90 days sober.
"Yes, she has 90 days and I couldn't be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it's work," she said. "It’s very hard, it's not easy and there are no shortcuts."
The singer has yet to make an announcement about her apparent release from rehab, but back in August, she said she's taking a break from the spotlight to focus on her recovery.
"I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery," she wrote. "The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I will look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting."
